It wasn't easy, being caught in the shadows. Toshiko had never been one to be noticed. Sometimes she doubted that Owen saw her as more than a colleague. He wasn't an easy man to love, struggling with himself, lashing out when someone dared to come too close.

Finally, she realized that something had changed. He didn't balk at the idea of a relationship anymore, and she found the courage to leave the shadows behind.

But it was too late, and Owen got trapped in the shadows himself.

Only unlike Tosh, he would never be able to step out of them.

Thanks. :)

They are rare, that's right. Most of the authors are preocupied with Jack/Ianto - me, too. :D I wanna make an effort, though, to do more fics about the other characters as well.

Thanks. :) That's what I was thinking. I thought about doing something Jack/Ianto first, but then I realized that Tosh/Owen would be even better.

So tragic - they were finally ready to see if a relationship would work between them, but they left it too late and lost the chance.
